    I bought this watch (WAV511C) on holiday in New York. Coming home to Norway I just learned that it costs nearly 2000$ more here, I`d say that`s a good deal!


    I`m considering buying a brown leather strap, but visited the AD in Norway today and found out that it`s about 1000$ for the strap, which I find quite steep..

    Can anyone tell me what the leather straps go for in the US?
    Beautiful Grand Carrera. I have the same one except in black. For the strap, I would try contacting your nearest TAG service center since I got a great deal for a Monaco strap and clasp that only amounted to about $180. It's going to take a month or two since it will be coming from Switzerland but for the price, I don't mind waiting.

    Y'know, I've been drawn to the Calibre 1 watch because it comes in essentially a larger sized "proper" Carrera style case (unlike the Grand Carrera) but I haven't ever really been sure of the actual size of it.
    How much bigger is it than the regular Carrera?
    Can you take some side by side comparision shots of the Calibre 1 and the Carrera?

    These watches only came in steel or gator strap. Strap alone is close to $400USD and that's without the clasp which is another $200-300USD.

    Your best bet is to try an online strap vendor to avoid these high prices.
    Thanks :) I tried earlier today to locate online strap vendors, but none of those I visited had straps for that specific watch (I`m usually unlucky there). Do you have any recommended sites I could check out?

    Cheers

    What I meant was to get a non-TAG strap. Measure the lug size and get an aftermarket strap that fits.

    Wow! For that kind of money I would get both a brown and a black strap.
    My AD said $1100 when I asked for a croc strap to my CV2A11. Thanks, but no thanks.
    Can you order a strap for me too?

    I`ll try my luck with the AD`s in Mallorca. Going next week and noticed they had two dealers there. With the euro dropping rather fast right now I might get lucky and get a good deal.

    Thanks

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Would someone be able to provide a wrist shot of a GC WAV5112.BA0901? white faced GC chrono.

    I did the search but to no avail.

    Thank you in advance.
